Is the difference between numpy.memmap and format.open_memmap only
that the latter will guess the correct shape and dtype of the array? I
did not found much documentation about memmap and what is the best
format for storing an ndarray.

I opened co and cor as mmap using  format.open_memmap but the command
cor[:,:] = co[:,u] gives the same error as before. I suspect that the
command creates a temp variable in RAM with the size of co. I can copy
the data in blocks, but the operation becomes really slow (> 10 min).

Thanks for the suggestions so far.
